Events > GCSE Easter Revision Course

This residential course supports students who are blind or vision impaired in Years 9, 10 and 11 with preparations for GCSEs.

Study sessions focus on Maths, English and Science and on study skills and exam technique. Evening activities are provided so that students have the opportunity to socialise and relax.

Participants have the choice of VI curriculum sessions (which will include Independent Living Skills, Mobility, ICT and specialist Braille Codes).

Collage of students learning; Computer work, Science and one to one with Teacher

Students will stay in residential accommodation in the College houses (may be shared bedrooms).

As well as learning a range of skills to support their general learning, students will learn specific approaches to revision and exam techniques such as:

  • UEB Maths
  • Practical Science
  • Tactile Diagrams
  • Study Skills
  • Exam technique

By the end of the course students will understand that there are others with the same issues, but that a vision impairment does not need to be a barrier to success. Students enjoy being one of a group, who work together to find their way around the College and socialise together.


Participants on the course will be offered accommodation in the residential houses on site and meals will be taken in the College dining room.

Relaxation time:

In the evenings the students can enjoy a range of activities such as tandem riding and ten pin bowling, making new friends and sharing experiences.

Who can benefit:

The course is open to all Year 9, 10 and 11 students with a vision impairment who are preparing for GCSEs


The course is £100, which includes all meals and accommodation. You will be invoiced on receipt of the booking form.


The next Revision Course is Wednesday 1st April at 1pm to Friday 3rd April 2020 at 1pm
